Ellen DeGeneres is staying with Courteney Cox after selling her Beverly Hills mansion, the host revealed on “The Ellen Show.”
During Thursday’s episode, DeGeneres jokingly introduced Cox, who was a guest on her show, as her “landlord”— a title Cox rejected.
“I don’t consider me a landlord, I consider myself your roommate,” the “Friends” actress said. She called DeGeneres her “style guru,” and even told the host she was “nervous” about DeGeneres staying at her home.
“I haven’t redone it. I haven’t been there in a year,” Cox said. “I had it cleaned. I moved everything off of the right side of the bathroom, so you’d have your space in the drawers. I was just really ready for you.”
According to Cox, however, DeGeneres was quick to make herself at home. When the actress checked that her home was acceptable for guests, she found that DeGeneres had moved some things around in the bathroom.
“And all of the sudden it was like, ‘Wait a minute. Ellen’s toothbrush is on my side!'” Cox joked. “So essentially you’re a terrible roommate. You took over my side and your side.”
DeGeneres defended herself by saying that it was actually her wife, Portia de Rossi, who moved Cox’s things.
And on the subject of her relationship, DeGeneres clarified to viewers that she wasn’t living with Cox because of relationship issues, lest any rumors get started.
“I’m not having marital troubles. I’m not living with Courteney Cox because I’m kicked out of my house,” DeGeneres said. She told viewers that she just needed a place to stay after selling her home, and that Cox was “kind enough” to host her.
DeGeneres isn’t the only famous roommate Cox has had. During the virtual Emmy awards in September, Cox reunited with her past “roommates” and “Friends” costars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow.
During a live video call with Jimmy Kimmel, who was hosting the annual television awards from an empty Staples Center, Aniston was speaking about her nomination for outstanding lead actress in a drama series when Cox walked into view.
“Look at this: Courteney Cox,” Kimmel said. “Courteney’s there?”
To which Cox replied: “Of course I’m here; we live together.” Aniston then quickly added: “Yeah we’ve been roommates since 1994, Jimmy.”
The pair were also shortly joined by fellow “roommate” and costar Lisa Kudrow. “Unbelievable, Lisa Kudrow, you live there too?” Jimmy said. And joining in on the joke, Kudrow replied: “Yeah, where else would I live?”
